    Jon Kitna was the one who inspired my username. He was the QB of the Seahawks at the time I got a computer and started browsing around. Never bothered to change it. I remember starting off at 8-2 with Jon at the helm. Ended up 9-7 with no playoffs. :lol3 How can a team fall that bad?

    Tebow to the Jags in 2013. "A virtual certainty."

    That'll put an end to the "He's a winner" bullshit.

    I'm surprised that Hodang hasn't commented yet on the GB performance.

    edit: Damn, I missed it by "that much". :poser

    I got benched on the last ticket so the game was watched at home, no biggie but they packers looked dam good and was the first in a long time neither side backed off all game.

    The texans sure are showing they arent the powerhouse everyone thinked they were and wow to the steelers getting knocked out of the play offs

    Hey, I have a long running question and I wanted to bring it to the peanut gallery for clarification:


    Why do I see a lot of teams burn a timeout to avoid a delay of game penalty, especially early in a scoreless game or in situations where there is no clear advantage to do so? A delay of game penalty is only 5 yards with no loss of down; a minor penalty by any standards. A burned timeout can dirty-dick a team in the last two minutes of a one possession game...

    I see this quite a bit. Why do QB's avoid a delay of game like the plague? I'm all up on strategy but I don't get why this happens. Do you know something I don't?

    :freaky

    Median drive length in the NFL is 30 yards. 5 yards isn't as minor as it seems.
    A penalty hurts the team. A burned TO might hurt the team.
    In general,
    5-yard penalties are for stupidity
    10-yard penalties are for cheating
    15-yard penalties are for endangering.
    Nobody wants to look stupid, especially coaches.
    Delay can be a symptom of overall confusion, which needs a timeout anyway.

    Good explanation. Thanks.

    It just seems to me saving timeouts for end of game time management and challenges is more important than taking a five yard hit without loss of downs. So they are confused, right? The time it takes for the officials to asses the penalty and march it out would be as good as a time out to get your shit together. :deal
